This landed in my inbox from the Peter Tatchell Foundation yesterday: while weddings are lovely and it’s nice to focus on the pretty, some things are too important to be ignored. I implore you: share your thoughts, raise your voice in support of gay marriage and make sure the government hears you before the consultation period comes to an end this week.
I’ve taken the liberty of copying and pasting the email as it came. I wrote about the consultation on gay marriage here on English Wedding Blog a few months ago: for a refresher, read is the wedding industry about to wake up to equal marriage?

In three days time, the government’s public consultation on legalising same-sex civil marriage will close. This Thursday, 14 June, is the end date for submissions to the government website.
Church leaders have mobilised over 500,000 people to sign a petition against UK government plans to allow same-sex couples to marry in civil ceremonies in register offices.
